This comes from highschool football(American) when the extra point is about to be kicked. Some highschools use a tee to hold the ball after it's snapped, although most do not. If a kicker doesn't want the tee, he asks his coach to remove it and kick it as it was meant, off the ground.
Kicker: What's the holder putting on the ground?
Coach: The tee you're going to kick off of.
Coach: Fine, kick it off the ground.
Person1: Let's go through the mall, it's quicker.
Person2: Fine, kick it off the ground.
Golfer A: I'm not going to use a handicap, but you can.
Golfer B: Fine, you go ahead and kick it off the ground. I'm taking the strokes.
